Interesting feedbacks and, I thank you all. We have to discuss one matter though: Why is a Tai-Dam language written on a manualscript dated from the Ming-Dynasty of China and, why is it written with Tibetan and Uyghur of which are languages so geographically far-away from the Tai-Dam languages?
Until recently, Thai/Tai/Kadai scripts have been ignorred. A lot of the information I've gleaned has been from journals suchs as: 1. Deutsche Morgenländische Gesellschaft (From whence I got the attached scans) 2. T'oung Pao 3. Bulletin de l'Ecole française d'Extrême-Orient (my favorite and available on line!!!) Most are too big to post here.....PDFs in the 50MB range.
